The quest for a WHL title came to an end for the Brandon Wheat Kings on Wednesday.
They were blanked, 3-0, in Game 4 of the WHL Final as the Kelowna Rockets completed the sweep to win their fourth Ed Chynoweth Cup and first since 2008-09.
The Rockets broke a scoreless tie early in the third period with two shorthanded goals 19 seconds apart on the same Wheat Kings power play. Leon Draisaitl, who was named MVP of the WHL playoffs, opened the scoring before Rourke Chartier quickly doubled the Kelowna lead.
Devils’ 2014 first-round pick John Quenneville finished tied for second on the Wheat Kings with 19 points (10g-9a) in as many playoff games. Brandon was making its first appearance in the final since 2005.
Kelowna will face the host Quebec Remparts in the 2015 Memorial Cup next Friday in Quebec City.
